Playing with vellum

Are you tired of Friends 'Til the End yet?  I'm certainly not...I was playing with vellum the other day and really liked how the lines of these flowers looked on it.  Vellum is tricky, because things smear, and it is difficult to adhere.  I do like it, but I'm a little scared of it.
I masked the flower to stamp the leaves behind.  Yes, I cut that blasted flower out again!  I also used a silver Sakura Stardust pen for the centers.  Click to enlarge for full sparkle effect.  
Paper: PTI White, vellum,  SU Purely Pomegranate 
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow
Stamps: PTI Friends 'Til the End, Everyday Classics (Hooray, it finally came!)
Other: ribbon from Michael's/Offray, SU black eyelets, Sakura Stardust pen-silver, dimensional tape, SU scallop punch

Birthday Card for My Sister

I made this birthday card for my sister, and I love how it turned out.  This large stamp is from Concord & 9th, called Hello, Lovely.  I colored it with Altenew's new markers, then added touches of a gold Wink of Stella marker.  I didn't want the sentiment to compete with the image, so I embossed it in gold on vellum.  Beautiful stamp!

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)

One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.
